Standard Machines are Enemies in NieR: Automata. They are the most common hostile Machine unit enemy encounters in the game. These Machine Lifeforms are the units commonly found and encountered in different Locations throughout the game and are not bound to one Location. They will each have different types of offensive equipment and unique abilities depending on the Machine type. Players can gain access to their individual Unit Data information after a successful encounter. This data logs down their unique characteristics and features and can be accessed from the intel menu.
